Abstract

Papers of anthropologist and professor Terence Hays. The archive primarily concerns Hays' three field studies in the Papua New Guinea highlands in 1971-1972, 1981, and 1985, where he researched language and interactions between the sexes. The collection includes correspondence, field notes and unpublished papers.

Biography

Terence Hays was born September 30, 1942, in Shenandoah, Iowa. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from the University of Omaha in 1966, a Master of Arts in anthropology from the University of Colorado in 1968, and a Doctor of Philosophy in anthropology from the University of Washington in 1974.

Hays received two Fulbright Senior Scholar awards and spent the majority of his career at Rhode Island College in the Department of Anthropology and Geography beginning in 1973. Hays has been a professor emeritus there since 2006.

Scope and Contents of Collection

The papers document the professional correspondence and research of anthropologist and professor Terence Hays. The bulk of the collection is centered largely around three field studies conducted by Hays in Papua New Guinea, and is arranged in three series: 1) CORRESPONDENCE, 2) FIELD NOTES and 3) WRITINGS.

SERIES 1: CORRESPONDENCE

The CORRESPONDENCE series illustrates the large amount of administrative work necessary for one to organize a trip to a location as remote as the Papua New Guinea Highlands, as well as numerous requests for research materials and publications from colleagues in similar fields of study, and dialogues on his and others' research subjects.

SERIES 2: FIELD NOTES

Hays' FIELD NOTES span his three grant-funded field studies in Papua New Guinea. The first study spanned fifteen months, beginning in July 1971, and focused on the variation of plant and animal knowledge of individuals in a Tairora-speaking community (Ndumba) in the Kainantu District of Eastern Highlands Province. The second study spanned two months in 1981 and focused on ethnobiology, gender relations, and oral literature in the same Eastern Highlands community. Hays' third study took place over a month in 1985 and served to further the research he began in 1981. The field notes comprise thirty-two handwritten notebooks from his first field study in 1971-1972, followed by loose-leaf handwritten notes from all three expeditions which are arranged by subject. Hays' typed field notes, which aggregate the contents of the field notebooks and notes from the three field studies with the rest of his research, are filed by subjects he assigned himself.

SERIES 3: WRITINGS

The WRITINGS series contains a number of Hays' unpublished papers on the people and plants of the Papua New Guinea Highlands, as well as one unpublished article and one report used for research.
